i am an animal lover and a pet owner (2 turtles and a dog). i believe in giving homes to pets in need. however, i HATE the term "forever home". not certain why...it just grates on my nerves. it's like saying "home" isn't good enough...but seriously, you can promise "forever"?

Well it's a cat. Unless you're in your seventies you are probably going to outlive it.

"Forever" as opposed to "until I get tired of you"? Yeah, I give my pets a forever home.

After the cats were rescued on Aug. 29, mayoral candidate and former MTA chairman Joe Lhota questioned the decision to shut down the rails to save them.


Good strategy, going after the sought after "I hate cats" demo.

Unfortunately, I am not privy to the Ms. Jackson meme so no, I don't get it.

However, I will tell you that I have had several pets from birth to death and never took any to the pound/gave away etc. because of some stupid sh*t thing like getting married/moving/having a baby/getting tired of the pet/particular breed 'going out of style' etc.  So yeah, forever ever, barring sudden death and that is entirely beyond my control.

I am just sick of people considering animals disposable as soon as they tire of it.

We ate pussy at the Chineese restaurant.
We ate pussy with beansprouts and whatnot.
Straight from the litterbox...
right to the sizzling woks.
I know there's something funny with our dish.
It tastes like chicken but it smells like fish...

Not being NYC-centric, how did kittens shut down a subway, and why would they vote for de Blasio?

Yeah, real political genius, that guy. "Let's see how many votes I can get by arguing that the subway train should have been used to flatten two little kittens. It's not as if anyone likes those cute, adorable, fluffy little meowing critters away."

They were spotted on the tracks so the subway was shut down until they could be removed safely. NY mayoral candidates were asked about it and some said that they wouldn't have shut down the subway just for a couple of kittens but de Blasio said he agreed with the decision

i don't think cold_sassy is 14, unless the pic in her profile is of her mother. i guess she just didn't listen to the radio...or tv...or go to a club...or hear the wind blowing outside...in the early aughts. that song was everywhere! you couldn't escape it!

Oh you!

"The cats are planning to vote for (Bill) de Blasio," Lynn quipped.

Oh you!

i don't quite get what you're saying
are you saying you don't listen to the popular top 40 tunes?
if so, that is perfectly cromulant.
however, you obviously know the hit to which i refer, or you wouldn't have bothered commenting.
do you know the other song to which i refer? from which the "if you have to ask" line derived?

This, holy fark.  That cat might be better off living under the subway.  At least there'd be plenty of mice to eat, and death by electrocution sure beats a slowly crushed neck.

There are shelters, foster home, and other temporary housing.  Forever home is just a quick identifier that it's a permanent adoption versus a temporary one.

I think they went on strike.

Clemkadidlefark: ...why would they vote for de Blasio?

Well, the black one, obviously.  But the other one, I don't know. Too young to know better?

yeah i get what it means. just phrases like "forever home" sound very silly to me. perhaps i'm alone in this. and that's ok...and normal...i have strange thoughts, quirks, irritants, etc.

Not good to be referred to in the NYC tabloids as a "kitten killer". He actually had to say during a TV debate that he is not the anti-kitten candidate and that he never said he wanted to kill a cat.

The mistake was having large and loud (I used to live there) transit workers stomping around yelling, "HERE F*CKING KITTY KITTY!" If they'd gotten a couple of shelter workers, the subways would have been running sooner. That said, Go Brooklyn!
